And Then She Fell
Stephanie Lauren's is one of my favorite authors, but this book wasn't as good as the previous. It tended to run on in certain areas.
It was nice to have read about the Cynsters from previous books in this book though. I hope the next one is better than this. I still love to read Stephanie Lauren's books!
Who really wrote this book?
We know that the author had trouble finding a title for this novel. She told us. She also had trouble finding developed characters and the passion that characterizes most of her earlier books.
Pitiful. Characters are flat and it feels as though there's a "writing mill" somewhere. Put the Cynsters down and look for some originality!
There are too many repetitive statements as usual.
I use to read her books religiously but then her style change, maybe her contract changed to a word count fee.
I tried this one because I wanted to give her another chance and it was inexpensive. I started skipping pages half way through, something I almost never do.
The story it self would have earned 4 stars, without all the filler. It had promise but just kept getting worse. It was like she got half way through and realized she was going to come up short on her word count.
I have logs on authors I have liked I the past, Laurens' page has, "Stop for gods sake, stop!" I should have listened to my own words.
